Repair the Roof of a Privy

Privy on the A.T.Join the A.T. Committee of the Appalachian Mountain Clubs Berkshire Chapter on Tuesday, June 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  and help repair the roof of the South Wilcox privy. 

Of the 7 Leave No Trace Principles (LNT), the third one is to dispose of waste properly, and to pack out what you pack in. Since hikers aren’t asked to pack out their poo on the A.T. (though some land managers request it), trail maintainers help hikers by building and maintaining privies that provide a sanitary means of composting human waste.

Be sure to wear long pants and sturdy boots. Bring plenty of water and snacks for the day, a lunch, sunscreen, bug spray, and a rain jacket.
